As China struggles to become more open the underlying governmental organization will need to change. For all of the faults and abuses, China of today provides greater opportunities for citizens than in any time in history. It is difficult for the West to be critical of China since the economic crisis, because this too was a result of corrupt business and government.
After an initial spike of interest (captured in this Google Trends image, courtesy of Techcrunch), people decided to either stick to the virtual world they know or continued to ignore and/or deride virtual worlds.About the only connection between Lively and other Google products was its portability entry points to the site could be embedded on web sites and blogs, just as with YouTube videos. Otherwise, it was fairly outside Google’s wheelhouse, which is search and advertising.Naturally, this has caused some (such as Valleywag and Pocket Lint) to suggest that the whole Second Life, avatar thing is over. (As Valleywag astutely noted, the Reuters reporter who had the half baked idea to set up a bureau in the Second Life world stopped filing at the end of September.)It’s a valid point.
Chambray tends to read just a little more casual that Oxford cloth and may seem a more “right” in jeans and sneakers type contexts. But. You can also dress them up a bit maybe not as much as OCBDs, but a chambray shirt under a casual sport jacket is a really nice, relaxed look..
Interesting that you posted this yesterday, as I did the same test (no video) yesterday on my way home from work. For me, the car tracked just fine and continued on correctly in the 101S HOV lane; it did not follow the left side divider line as yours did. I know this, because I actually wanted to take the 85S HOV overpass, so had to grab the wheel and steer the car over the divider into the left HOV lane.
This is not the case if you go to public schools in Somerville or Cambridge.I would say give the BPS system a chance. As a first generation immigrant, I didn have a lot of support from my mom that barely spoke english. I did it myself and your child can probably too.
Some may argue that it’s any company’s job is to produce a profit, pay dividends and invest wisely in both their own resources such as staff an stock holders and to act responsibly and morally when dealing with joe public. It seems to me that it doesn’t matter whether barklays accepted bailout money from the public purse or not, nothing justifies the hugh bonuses or wages to the people at the top and the increase in wages of offset lower bonuses this year, or so we are led to believe, is immoral when the rest of the country is suffering as we are. Let’s not go down the old route of new governments blaming previous governments for ‘the mess we inherited’, let’s remember the global economic meltdown started with the banks and the lack of control governments were using to stop companies such as the banks, and in particular the banks, from acting irresponsibly and immorally amoungst themselves.
